Simon Evans: Genius

From 29th May 2019
Aldeburgh Festival 2019
‘A masterclass in socio-political comedy…The Show is called Genius. It comes very close’
The Scotsman

Off The Kerb Productions present Simon Evans: Genius.

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm…

Stand up comedy from star of Live at the Apollo, his own Radio 4 series Simon Evans Goes to Market and Newsquiz.
